Sub/Amp Combo to Factory stereo-LOC
I searched and got some answers-just need clarification.
2008 2.5S w/ non-bose factory stereo which I'm going to keep.
I have a Alpine 10" type R sub and Alpine MRP450 amp basically collecting dust. It was going to go in my Ranger (my second vehicle) but since I drive my Altima more, I'm thinking of getting the setup installed in the Altima.
So, what I have read is...I can use a line out converter (LOC) but I think my amp has line level so may not need a LOC. The remote wire can go to the fuse box to a fuse that only is on when car is on or in acc. Power to battery. I don't want to mess with the factory radio and speakers, just would like some extra bump which this setup will do.
Question is, anyone experience any trouble using a LOC or connecting a sub/amp this way? Or have a positive experience using a LOC? I'm so used to using an aftermarket h/u, sub, and amp that using a LOC or tapping into rear speakers has be hesitating. I love my car (like everyone on here) and do not want to ruin any electrical components.
